    Thumbs up A big hello from Sonar and eerrr in doors from Bishop Auckland

    I and err indoors have just joined this a great looking and full of information forum.

    We have had a number of vessels over the years from yachts to ribs and now are trying the fun sport Canoeing.

    Well due to the lack of storage and carriage we decided on an inflatable canoe.
    like so many others.
    Having had a brief look through the forum seems were not alone.

    well so far we are now looking about for the place to start our first of hopefully many paddling trips.

    The first time we have had anything like a canoe with a soft inflatable keel.
    A little worrying I think...... But I guess it is something new to us.
    even though when I was a lot younger i used to use a hard canoe in the coastal waters around Southampton.
    Prior to that it was a scouts built canoe timber and canvas weighed a fair bit as i recall.

    Well time to leave now and start diving into the forum.

    Many thanks
    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    I am sure that you will enjoy the canoe. You will be able to explore places a rib or yacht canot take you! A word of warning - it is addictive!

    Default right on the nail

    That was what we thought there are some real nice places and as you say.
    You wont get to them in a yacht.

    We used to take a camera when we went to see and seldom took a single picture.

    Speeding across the sea is o.k. but nothing much to see.

    Many thanks
    Robert
